Looking Back: Year of the Horse at CUHK

Time flies! The year of the Horse is waving goodbye to us. In the past year, members of CUHK have experienced many unforgettable moments together.

The year of Horse was full of vitality. Close to 2,000 CUHK runners at the Standard Chartered Marathon took an early lead in our year’s activities. Following up came over 1,500 students and teachers who filled the Mall with World Cup fever in the early morning of July.

The year of the Horse saw lots of other fun on campus. The three weeks I • CARE Film Festival screened a large variety of films around the campus, inspiring the mind and nourishing the heart. A small thatched cottage was built by the lawn next to Lake Ad Excellentiam, making a peaceful place for passers-by to write their thoughts and take a rest.

The year of the Horse enlightened us. Nobel Laureates shared their insightful views. Famous picture book author Jimmy Liao and film director Sylvia Chang inspired us with their unusual experiences.

The year of the Horse was a fruitful one to many. Thousands of students graduated from the University and embraced the next stage of their lives; high recognition was received for CUHK’s efforts in building a Green Campus.

Now, let's take a look back on some of those memorable moments in the year of the Horse.

The Lifelong Love of Professor and Mrs. Charles Kao

With optical fiber cables, it takes only seconds to transmit data, but showing love takes a lifetime. On Valentine’s Day, Professor Charles Kao, Vice-Chancellor of CUHK from 1987 to 1996 and the winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics for his revolutionary invention of fiber optics, visited CW Chu College with his beloved wife, Mrs. Gwen Kao to share their moving love story with students.

Mrs. Gwen Kao related their story, which spans over 50 years, from the indelible first encounter, through career, family success and later in old age, to faithful companionship and unwavering devotion. Mrs. Kao went into depth on the struggles and triumphs along the way. The affecting account by Mrs. Kao was succeeded by a riveting reading by four students of a poem titled “The Man who Shrank the World with Light”, written by Professor Kao’s personal friend Richard Epworth, in praise of the great electrical engineer and physicist.

Let us revisit the heartwarming event through the video.
